Abstract

By using poly(acrylonitrile-co-vinyl acetate) as a gelator in an acetonitrile-based liquid electrolyte, an in situ gelation of the liquid electrolyte can be performed inside the mesoporous matrix of TiO 2 films. By introduction of TiO 2 nanoparticles as fillers of the gel-electrolyte, the energy conversion efficiency of a gel-state dye-sensitized solar cell can achieve a value higher than that of a liquid-state cell.
